    Red face Girl Gamers

    It seemed when I first started playing lotro I was the only female playing. I'm sure I wasn't the only one that felt that way :P LoTROL is my first game and I have been playing since closed beta and still having a blast! Im a mom of 3 BEAUTIFUL girls and live in Tennessee. Yeah, I'm a country girl accent and all. Born and raised in the south It seems the population of girl gamers are growing too and that is SO awesome. I want to hear others stories of how they came to play lotro, what class you are and how you are enjoying it or not. I enjoy meeting new peeps and hearing their stories Well that's it for now. CHEERS!! ~Talya

    Re: Girl Gamers

    As has been stated in many forum topics, just because a player in the game has a female persona, doesn't necessarily mean the real life player is female.


    I have mostly gone back to WoW because I can't find that many mature people to play with here. And LOTRO doesn't seem very 'solo play' oriented or friendly. At least in WoW I have a real pet to 'hide behind'

    I still enjoy Lords but only with a mature group that isn't bouncing of walls and ordering people around to play 'their' game, their way..

    True. But we're around, in a higher population than many seem to realize.

    Girl gamer here- joined for the LOTR aspect of it, but fell in love with the gaming aspect of it. Still a student, though

    I second that. I have a no wood for hishn motto but I my backside is still reeling from that warg bite. Female gamer myself. I come from a long list of mmo's. I am having fun in Lotro and been spending allot of time with the aussies. I think the reason I made it into the Sin guild was I talked on vent and Sokar couldn't resist. Least that is what I am told

    You shouldnt believe everything/or anything Anca says. I had scouted your spider for recruitment long before I knew you {always seen you around in the battle}. Unfortunately you were in BAOS. Then anca kept insisiting I invite some green i didnt know, in direct violation of our 'recruitment policy' {which im starting to think is fictional...}.

    When I found out it was you, I invited away.

    Good to see plenty of female gamers about. I know in mxo whenever a chick posted their RL photo in the pic thread, they became seriously paranoid and didnt talk to anyone. {few exceptions of course}

    I am the one in orange w/ my two kids (look younger than i am and holding the weenie dog.)

    girl gamers are not the stereotypes everyone thinks. I went to paxeast and yes many of the guy gamers fit the stereotypes but the girl gamers do not.

    Met many nice girls but still find oddly i like to play w/ the boys.

    The girls a lot of the time in the game get very competitive boys just stroke their epeen.

    This girl loves pvp .

    will always love pvp , yet i do find more girls being support roles.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one who has made that observation. I find that girls get very weird about other girls getting any attention at all from their throng of male admirers (I'm talking about the types of men that fall all over themselves when a girl talks in vent). It's silly, since this is a GAME, not real life, and the men (or boys) whose attention they're vying for probably don't look anything at all like the fantasy they've concocted.

    I hope a lot don't realize, I get really tired of little adolescent hormone bombs

    I like it guys play girls (for whatever reason) makes it a lot easier to have a decent game when some guy thinks "Could I actually be trying to chat up a ugly 50ish guy?"

    Re: Girl Gamers

    I'm a real girl...and this is my first MMO...and loving it still. I have a group of table top D&D friends (talk about a lack of females gamers) and they talked me into trying LOTRO after I finished up my master's degree. LOL...now I play way more than they do!

    It is funny though...I find that most of the girl gamers I know play in the Moors...does anyone else find that odd?

    Funny story about that...we actually built her as a puppet for our Kin leader to use as his Captains herald but we needed another Minstrel to raid so we got Gandalf to make her real...

    Silliest quote of the year award.

    The maturity of WoW is way below that here.I have found the proportion of female players willing to admit that they are playing is a lot higher in this game than any other I have played,thus proving the more mature community here let's them feel safer and allows them the freedom to play the way they want to.

    Re: Girl Gamers

    hm i've been playing online games since .. starcraft broodwars!
    there's a game thats hard to be a girl in lol, that and diablo ii/lod.

    lotro was my husbands thing while i played a different game, he lured me over during some downtime and now I'm stuck, ironically he stopped playing ;p

    I think the funniest thing is to have the ingame voice on or log into vent, when people go 'oh you're really a girl?'. I wonder how many other ladies out there have heard that line on more than a few occasions hehe.

    I've had an easier time with the Lotro community than some of the previous venues, so I'd have to agree with jj67 Less strange toadie guys that suddenly want to give you all their stone of jordans x_x lol

    I enjoy all 5 of the classes I play, currently leveling a lore master

    what they say, girl power! +pompom!

    Re: Girl Gamers

    I have always enjoyed gaming with members of the other sex (yes I am male) in this and other games I have played and I find that they tend to be a bit more mature than their male counterparts in age correspondence, with few exceptions. Of course since coming from SWG, I have noticed that the maturity level of the general population in LotRO is a thousandfold better than SWG. The line at the horse races is proof enough at that.

    Spoken like one of the people I was referring to..Thanks for making my point.

    True, there is immaturity in WoW but I have found more mature player there than I have here.

    And I have been playing MMO's since day one (I was on BBS's and playing Trade Wars and BRE before the internet was even made public) and I was on the internet before the web was even around (and only nerds knew about the internet) playing the first MMO's, we called them MUDS

    Yay! A girly thread!

    Completely ignore the forum handle, it's a rather old joke. I am a gal from sunny old England. A medical student in my final year. I'm 22 and I have no kids.

    I vowed I'd never play an MMO because I was told how addictive they could be. Obviously I took that vow incredibly seriously, lol, LotRO seemed to be the exception to break the rule (and I even had someone pestering me to try WoW), as I'm a fan of the books I simply couldn't resist poking my nose in. I mean it's LotR, how could I say 'no'?

    Then when I started to get to know some of the community members I was hooked, and I've been floating around for quite a while now. I managed to score a spot in Alpha 2 and have been here ever since - well over a year now - and it has been fun, but I was right: These games are highly addictive.


    I want toast.

    *jumps and waves* I'm an old-fashioned Pennslyvanian girl, currently 24, and I've been a gamer since I got a nintendo one christmas and I haven't looked back! XD This is definitely my favorite game (despite the nerfs that have been done to my main), and I'm gonna stick around for a long time!

    I can't wait till we can visit and walk around Minas Tirith and jump off the tower of Ecthelion (sp?) and then later, jump in the Cracks of Doom! It'll be even more fun than the suicide jumps off of Weathertop!! XD XD
